For 85 Years, the Cathedral Has Drawn Thousands of Faithful
When the Yankees take the mound against the Baltimore Orioles in Yankee Stadium tonight, the game will be the culmination of 85 years of history in the House That Ruth Built . Yankee Stadium , with its 12-foot blue letters spelling out its name and welcoming guests, is a New York landmark and seminal part of Major League Baseball that has been the home to some of the nation's most memorable sports and pop culture moments.
"I am going to miss Yankee Stadium. I'd be lying to you if I said I wasn't," said Yankee shortstop.
The nation's most famous baseball stadium is home to the team that has won more World Championships than any other. Within the stadium's fences, 11 no-hitters, 100 World Series games, 26 championship titles and three perfect games have played out.
